About SoMeT_06

Extended Paper Submission Deadline: 24th May 2006

Conference aim and objectives:

The 5th International Conference on Software Methodologies, Tools and Techniques (SoMeT_06) will take place on October 25-27, 2006, in (Québec, Canada). This event will continue and extend a coming series workshops on SOMET series to be arranged in Rome (Italy) on 2007.

This workshop shows and reflects the new state-of-art on new trends in software methodologies, its case tools and techniques, and this year will be much emphasis on Software Security software related techniques.

We invite you to participate in SOMET_06 to help build a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences in the field of new directions on software development methodologies, and its tools and techniques.

This conference focuses and captures the essence of the innovations, controversies, challenges, and possible solutions of the software industry. This theory born from experience and it is the time through this workshop and its coming series, to stimulate through it the academic research on software science initiated from experience to theory. This workshop is an opportunity for us in the software science community to think about where we are and today and where we are going.

In this workshop may be, there will be also, some presentations on the results of Lyee International research project, oriented for new software generation techniques based on Lyee technology and sponsored by a major Japanese Industry on software methodologies and technologies.

The area of this workshop, will emphasis on but not limited:

  • Requirement engineering, especially for high-assurance system, and requirement elicitation, 
  • Software methodologies, and tools for robust, reliable, non-fragile software design.
  • Lyee oriented software developments techniques, and Lyee legacy systems
  • Automatic software generation versus reuse, and legacy systems, source code analysis and manipulation,
  • Software quality and process assessment for business enterprise models, 
  • Intelligent software systems design, and software evolution techniques,
  • Software optimization and formal methods for software design,
  • Static and dynamic analysis on software performance model, and software maintenance,
  • Software security tools and techniques, and related Software Engineering models,
  • Formal techniques for software representation, software testing and validation,
  • Software reliability, and software diagnosis systems,
  • Mobile code security tools and techniques,
  • Security policies specification and validation,
  • End-user programming environment, User-centered Adoption-Centric Reengineering techniques
  • Ontology, cognitive models and philosophical aspects on software design,
  • Software design through interaction, and precognitive software techniques for interactive software entertainment applications,
  • Creativity and art in software design principles,
  • Aspect oriented programming and other programming disciplines for secure software.

The workshop program will be based on several invited talks and papers ( arrived through this CFP). The papers will be reviewed to check the quality of the papers, their presentation and their relevance to the workshop. The review will be done by the help of the program committee members. We will ask the respective authors of the accepted papers to make (if any) some modifications
to increase the technical value of the papers presentation. This cycle should be finished within the 20 June 2006. Those selected revised papers and the invited papers will describe high quality innovative and significant work in the research and practice of software science, in the related technical fields of this workshop.
